About Me

My photo
I try to be superwoman. I like iced cappuccinos, photography, design and being neat and tidy. My husband and I are homebodys - even though we've been together for 10 years, (married for three) our life is never boring. We have an almost two year old daughter who is the center of our world. Join us as we make our house a home and juggle parenthood for the first time.

Less than 10 weeks left

I can't believe I am almost 31 weeks along! I feel like I've been in the twenties forever. I am really looking forward to my shower to see family and friends before Sophie is born and to finally feel prepared at home. It really hits when you think that I could give birth at 38 weeks, so that leaves 7 weeks left..or 39 weeks so that leaves 8 weeks, etc!

I've still been feeling pretty well - "the waddle" has definitely started and the bathroom breaks are intensifying. Still have not had any Braxton Hicks (false labor) contractions that I can feel yet. Sophie is now a little over 16 inches long and weighs about 3 1/2 pounds. She is actually heading into a growth spurt!

Tonight is the second week of prepared labor classes. Spence and I have been enjoying them as it puts us in the mindset of our upcoming miracle. Tonight we are going to be talking epidurals (hell, yes.) and massage. Sounds like a good class to me. Last week we focused on breathing and relaxation techniques and even watched a video of a birth.

For those of you that are interested, I came across a site that shows what my body has been through these past 8 months. Crazy, huh?

In house news I am hoping to get some new shots of our kitchen since I still have to show you our new chandelier and curtains. :)

OMG I think I watched that little video five times. That is so cool and so amazing.
